A sparkly challenge!

The DT girls at The {Stamps} of Life decided to throw out a challenge to each other.
Please feel free to play along with us!

Our challenge was to create a card featuring GLITTER AND SHINE! I used glittery cardstock from Doodlebug, and coated my cupcake with Stickles AND yellow Doodlebug glitter! (And yes, my desk is covered in glitter, and it is stuck to everything I have touched in the past 24 hours . .. including a sparkly four-month-old!)

I am trying to create more cards that are FLAT so that they don't cost extra postage to mail. . .(so I am sorry to whoever gets this card one day, I'll probably pull the rhinestone off!!) Instead of using brads or jewels along the side, I punched a circle out of each purple strip to create dots - flat, free, and easy! :)

We would love for you to join in our challenge, and create something sparkly, shiny, or glittery! If you are playing along with The {Stamps} of Life stamps or digital images please upload to the gallery on the site HERE with the keyword TSOLD01. Hint, hint.... we look through the gallery regularly for new guest designers. Oh! Did I mention that there are a couple freebie digital images on the site?! You can find them HERE.

Please link to one of our blogs so we can see your stuff!
